Welcome to the eighty-eighth episode of the Short Science Podcast!
Join Elizabeth Hauke, Polly Bennett and David Robertson for all the very best science in brief!
After the Short Science, we'll be considering why the UN has named 2011 the year of the forest. Polly and David will be taking a look at the value of forests in our modern world, and also putting the logging industry in Madagascar under the microscope. Plus, David will be telling us about the curious world of mud, where organisms have to survive without any oxygen!
